"I am David Copperfield"

The name David Copperfield inverts the initials of Charles Dickens, but when a friend observed this fact, the author claimed to be surprised by the coincidence. In the novel, however, David Copperfield is rarely addressed as “David.” Instead, he is often known as “Davy,” “Doady,” “Trot,” “Trotwood,” or “Copperfield.”
